Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA)
The Ottawa Convention Centre (OCC) is an operational agency of the government of Ontario, and as such is guided by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The Act was passed in 2005 with the intention of making Ontario accessible by 2025 through the development of province-wide, enforceable standards on accessibility for people with disabilities.
Opened in April 2011, the Ottawa Convention Centre was built with a universal design approach to ensure the accessibility of the building. OCC meets the most stringent technical accessibility requirements of the guiding building codes and standards used in the redevelopment project, including the Ontario Building Code, the CSA B651 Accessibility of the Built Environment Standard, the Americans with a Disability Act Accessibility guidelines, and the AODA Accessible Environment Standard.
